  1. Enhanced Methane Production by Co-Gasification of Potassium-Rich Biomass and Coal

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25a

    Natural gas, which is predominantly methane, is widely used by industry as a chemical feedstock and as a fuel for power generation. The increasing price and diminishing domestic supply of natural gas creates an incentive to develop a low-cost replacement for the fuel. Coal gasification is one approach to provide the alternative fuel. However, the dominant commercially available coal gasifiers are ...

  3. Pulsed Liquid Metal Ion Source for Heavy Ion Fusion

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: 3

    75488-Pulsed ion sources are used in a variety of applications from heavy ion fusion to space propulsion. In order to optimize the ion beams that are produced, it is necessary to have a very high degree of reproducibility from pulse to pulse. Liquid metal ion sources have been shown to provide beams with extremely low noise and no significant charge state variation; however, the useful emitter c ...

  4. Axial Magnetic-Field-Enhanced, High-Density Plasma Neutralized Beam Transport for High Energy Density Physics and Inertial Fusion Energy


    78676 Fusion energy has the potential of providing significant electrical power in the future, reducing U.S. dependence on dwindling oil supplies. A critical aspect of developing inertial fusion energy, as well as enabling high-energy-density physics studies, is the ability to tightly focus intense, high-energy ion beams. Recent studies have shown that the stringent focusing requirements can be ...

  5. Performance Monitoring, Prediction, and Run-Time Adaption of Grid-Distributed Applications

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: 41b

    78647 Three-dimensional seismic imaging is a computationally-intensive technology that has allowed the success ratio of exploratory oil and gas wells to increase from 20% to 80%. This project will develop technology for identifying, predicting, and monitoring factors to increase the efficiency of this process. Specifically, given a parallel program executing on a homogeneous or heterogeneous clu ...

  6. A Cross-Disciplinary Environment for Computationally and Data Intensive Applications in the Geosciences

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: 43

    The exploration and production (E&P) of oil and natural gas is one of the most computationally demanding endeavors, generating terabytes of data. To optimize the management of a producing oil field or to find new reserves, the E&P data must be readily available to a multidisciplinary asset management team. The data must be easy to access, and it must be effectively managed by a team of geologist ...

  7. Materials Degradation Analysis and Development to Enable Ultra Low Cost, Web-Processed White P-OLED for SSL

    SBC: Add-vision, Inc.            Topic: 12b

    In previous research, a specialty solid-state lighting (SSL) device had been developed. A doped Polymer Light-Emitting Diode (POLED) device structure is used, which enables devices to be printed with low capital equipment and operating costs. Although the devices are efficient, thin, flexible, and robust, additional performance improvements would broaden the range of applications to interior bui ...

  8. High Brightness Neutron Source for Radiography

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 27

    75903-Neutron radiography, which uses nuclear reactors and accelerators as sources of neutrons, has been demonstrated to be an excellent method for imaging high-density, thick objects for the detection of corrosion, voids, and cracks, particular in nuclear power plants. Unfortunately, no high brightness neutron sources exist that are portable, inexpensive and capable of neutron radiography in sho ...

  9. High-Energy Gamma-Ray Calibration Source

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 26a

    There are no long-lived gamma-ray calibration sources with energies above 3.5 MeV, which is an impediment to the calibration of high-purity-germanium (HPGe) and scintillation detectors used in cutting edge experiments in nuclear physics, astrophysics, and homeland security. In addition, there are growing safety and security concerns about the storage of radioactive sources currently in use. The ...
